The energy & passion for garment decoration has not let up a bit as seen with the great turnout at ISS Atlantic City last week. Our team met a lot of folks brand new to the garment decoration industry and were there wanting to learn how to build their brands, and to meet who they would like to partner with.
Screen printers from EVERYWHERE were in Atlantic City in full force, eager to see the latest Riley Hopkins & ROQ automatic equipment. The 8x6 Riley Hopkins 300 garnered manual printers attention, while the brand new ROQ Next stole the hearts and minds of auto printers & shops that wanted to go auto in the near future. Check out the Riley Hopkins 300
It was a ROQ’n show
The ROQ Next was especially well received because this press was designed to be future proof for the digital, direct to garment print technology to come from ROQ. This means a printer can get all the benefits of the latest tech out of a ROQ press today, and be ready for in-line digital & pretreat technology, which is amazing. The Next also benefits from the feature rich ECO & YOU product lines. Dual chain drive, individual head control, independent arm lifting are just a few of the features that made their way into the Next’s design. Check out the ROQ Next

Allmade All Day
T-shirts were definitely a hot button subject as customers today are asking for more eco-friendly, sustainable, and socially conscious options. Customers are expecting garments that are high-quality, eco-friendly, and not made in a sweatshop. Printers were resonating with the fact that high-quality, eco-friendly t shirts are more likely to quickly become a customers favorite. This is a HUGE opportunity for any brand that wants to enjoy the remarketing or rewear potential for their promo gear & merch. When you use a higher quality garment, the rewear potential and overall opportunity for marketing impression goes through the roof. A lot of folks had not had the chance yet to put their hands on some Allmade’s tri-blend T-Shirts, once they did, it was magic. When they learned how Allmade shirts are eco-friendly, sustainable, and socially conscious… let’s just say we made a lot of printers day. Check out Allmade
